Overview for Legends and Parables of India (In 4 Books)

BOOK I: Legends and Parables of India-The Golden Deer and other tales from the Jatakas. BOOK II: Legends and Parables of India-The Magic Tree. BOOK III: Legends and Parables of India-Equal to a thousand and other tales. BOOK IV: Legends and Parables of India-A Strange Prophecy and other tales. India is a land of stories, rich in legends, parables and myths. Chandamama has enriched many generations of young minds with these stories. Saraswati Samman and Sahitya Akademi award winner Manoj Das is one of their finest contributors and Popular Prakashan is proud to co-publish a series of some of his best stories. The spiritual subtext and moral lessons in these delightful stories will, we hope, continue to fascinate and mould young Indian minds. The illustrations are by renowned artist Sisir Datta. The Jatakas are among the oldest stories in the world. Jataka literally means concerning birth. It is believed that the spirit, which ultimately took birth as the prince of Kapilavastu and became the Buddha, had taken birth earlier many many times. Each time it gained some valuable experience. The Jataka stories are morally rich. At the same time, they give us much information about the social conditions and characters of a remote past. Last but not the least, we can enjoy them as good stories.
